Seems that a lot of the people who visited here are discussing the Wilkesboro location, so let me be clear that this is about Boone.
These guys are the real deal. I have eaten in Italy, and in "little Italies" in Boston, NYC, and elsewhere. The red sauce at Amalfi's is wonderful. Their pastas are made in-house. Their soups are excellent. Their pizza is also great, but I can't rationalize the pizza when there's eggplant parmesan to be had.
Do yourself a favor and order an Italian specialty (don't order the steak or something you can get anywhere). You won't be sorry.
Oh, and the service is also excellent, the prices are extremely reasonable, and the portions are huge.
